AdvancePierre Foods, Cincinnati, added a new breakfast sandwich to its BIG AZ line featuring Schmidt’s Bahama Mama Sausage.

The BIG AZ Schmidt’s Bahama Mama Spicy Split Sausage sandwich is served with egg and cheese on a homestyle, fresh-made buttermilk biscuit. Each hand-assembled sandwich is individually labeled and wrapped in crisp, white butcher paper for fresh-made appeal.

Schmidt’s Bahama Mama Sausage is a spicy German sausage made of choice cuts of pork and beef and infused with natural spices. Schmidt’s is a restaurant based in Columbus, Ohio.

“Consumers wake up craving a big breakfast at a big value,” says Tony Schroder, president of convenience channels. “With the famous, savory tastes of Schmidt’s Bahama Mama Sausage, our new offering delivers everything consumers crave with big flavor.”

The sandwiches boast a 14-day refrigerated, 9-month frozen shelf life. They can be sold hot from a sandwich warmer or microwaved on demand from a cold case. The sandwiches are packed in retailer-friendly 8-count cases.
